The ‘Imprinted’ exhibitions, which are open until Sunday, are held in neighbouring galleries and showcase the work of artists Jane Glynn and Suman Gujral.

Jane’s exhibition features 12 oil paintings of garden flowers, along with silk pockets of dried flowers, which originated from her family home and which she collected and painted over the course of a year.

Suman’s work uses etching and printing to explore her own experiences of cancer and her mother’s experience of the 1947 Partition in India, showing how significant life events leave an enduring trace, as well as creating ‘Told/Untold’, a piece representing the boatloads of migrants who die trying to reach Europe.

Suman said: “The museum and UHArts who arranged this have been amazing - it’s wonderful that local artists are being promoted.”
